Next week, Pearl Jam are set to launch a South American tour. In anticipation, they’ve just let loose a brand new single via their official Ten Club fan club. Entitled “Can’t Deny Me”, it’s a politically charged rocker that sees Eddie Vedder taking some not so veiled shots at America’s current commander in chief. “You may be rich but you can’t deny me/ Got nothing but the will to survive,” he sings at one point. “The country you are representing/ Condition critical,” goes another line. Listen to a preview below, and hear the full song here.

Update – March 12th: The song has received a wide release and can be streamed in full below. It serves as the first preview of the band’s eleventh studio album.

Following the South American leg, Pearl Jam shows will play shows and festivals in the US and Europe this summer. See the full itinerary below, and grab tickets here.
